Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Praveen Tayal's  Response

Thanks for writing to us.

A painful lymph node near the ear can be due to inner ear infections or infections in the external ear canal. You need a detailed ENT examination to rule out the infections. Otherwise an FNAC of the lymph will confirm the diagnosis. Other causes can be metabolic disorders, chronic infections or malignancies.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
